Good restaurant and bar, quick check in. More comfy bed and pillows needed. No minibar due to covid.

Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Rooms are dated and basic. Pillows were awful, they were completely flat and impossible to sleep on. No spare pillows in the room. The room temperature was preset and impossible to make cooler. The service in the restaurant (although covid situation was blamed) was shocking! Buffet breakfast was advertised at the time of booking but a la cart menu offered (which was fine) BUT you could only choose ONE (coffee or juice, not both) drink. We ordered extra juice (at a charge of $7) which came in a dirty glass (forget covid sanitising) and straight from a pack (not freshly squeezed as the price might have suggested). My child was sternly told he can have his pancakes either with honey OR fruit (this was repeated three times to make sure we got the message). The reception was understaffed and there was a huge queue for check in. There were attendants at valet parking than at reception. Rooms have no soundproofing! You could hear TV in the next room and people walking down the hallway. We previously stayed in Novotel Canberra over six year ago and won't be staying there again anytime soon.
